New DC 75th Variant Cover for BATMAN #700
So, as part of a line-wide celebration of DC Comics’ 75th, they will be rolling out a number of special variant covers by some of the biggest names in the industry. But these aren’t standard variants. No, these covers will take a classic image from DC’s illustrious history and present a new, re-imagined version by an all-star list of artists.
The first release is a recreation of Detective Comics #168, originally drawn by Lew Sayre Schwartz. The cover of the issue went down in history as one of the most iconic covers of the Golden Age.
Hellboy creator Mike Mignola would does a beautiful recreation of Schwartz's work for DC 75th variant for Batman #700.
